Information and Resources for Current Students and Families

Mark Your Calendar!

Please check your calendars and let me know ASAP if you cannot make a workshop or a concert. 

I highly encourage all students to attend group workshops as this is when we apply the skills we are learning in private lessons to actually make music.

The sooner I know a student will be absent, the more efficiently and successfully I can plan a great event, hire an accompanist/workshop teacher, or rent or reserve teaching space.

which pays for facility rental and a backing musician.

Absences/Swaps/Makeups

• Let me know in writing via email or text if you know in advance you are not coming.

*For same day cancellations or communication, send a text message to 617-418-9490.


• I have reserved my time specifically for your student. Semester tuition includes one

free lesson which counts as a makeup for a sick day or missed lesson. There are no

other guaranteed makeups, except one snow day per semester. This will be made up on

school vacation weekends. Let me know ASAP if you will be away these dates, and we

can make other arrangements.


• If a religious holiday is the reason you must miss, notify me >2 wks in advance and we

will arrange a makeup. If I, the teacher, need to cancel lessons for reasons of illness or

emergency, I will also schedule a makeup for this.


• Swap Lessons: If a conflict arises, you may contact other students to seek a swap or

offer your open slot. (If you have a 45 minute lesson and switch for a 30 minute lesson,

the schedule cannot be altered.)

Please notify me after the switch has been decided and cc all parties on the email so I

know that everyone is on the same page.

Discontinuing Lessons

3 weeks notice is required if you decide not to continue lessons for any reason. If you have

paid by semester, the remainder will be refunded, minus the required 3 weeks' notice.

Parking/ Arrival

Park on Fells Ave & use caution crossing the street. Enter through Fells Ave entrance.


Aim to arrive no more than 5 minutes early. Please come in, prepare your instrument, and quietly take a seat on the couch while the previous lesson finishes up.
